On Monday afternoon (Pentecôte), our boarding house garden transformed into a vibrant and cheerful gathering space where the girls had the chance to bond, make delicious crepes, and temporarily set aside their books. With both Aida and Eirini present, it was an event that fostered a sense of community, relaxation, and shared laughter. At LY7, we are strong believers of the power of breaks in fostering a positive mindset and building a strong support system!
With the help of Regina, our pastry chef, and Melissa, the French crêpe master, we all embraced the opportunity to indulge in delicious crepes. Each girl had the opportunity to choose her own fillings and toppings, ranging from classic options like Nutella and fresh strawberries to more adventurous combinations like lemon zest and powdered sugar. Laughter and friendly banter accompanied the crepe-flipping process as the girls tested their culinary skills.
For this reason, ‘May Fitness Challenge’ was back again this year! Since the beginning of this month, we have had daily fitness challenges for the Boarding community. Each day, students were encouraged to take part in various exercises and compete against fellow boarding students.
The winners of the daily challenges in each House were rewarded with privileges, and there was also a prize for the student who participated in the most challenges throughout the month. The main goal of this initiative was to provide our students with a chance to have fun and briefly disconnect from the pressure and stress they may be feeling due to their exams. Congratulations to all those actively engaged in this campaign!
In addition to the daily fitness challenges, our girls have been regularly attending the weekly “Fitness,” “Bodyshaping,” and “Stretching & Relaxation” sessions on campus, which also take place on weekends.
Today we have celebrated International Day in CDL. A very important day for us to celebrate in our community. The girls have volunteered to help and had so much fun. Thank you girls for your support in this important day.
Taking a break from studying to indulge in some culinary adventures can be a refreshing and enjoyable way to recharge someone’s mind and nourish their soul. Not only does it provide a much-needed escape from the stress of studying, but it also offers a creative outlet and a chance to explore new healthy flavors and recipes. The act of baking is a multisensory experience. It allows our girls to focus on the present moment immersing themselves in the task at hand. Not to mention, the rewards of their culinary efforts are simply delightful. Whether it’s enjoying a warm slice of homemade blueberry pie or sharing a meal with the rest of the House, the joy of creating something with their own hands is unparalleled.
A big thank you to Ms. Sarah for sharing her passion for baking with our girls during the two weekends she spent in our House!
The highlight of our cooking adventures in these past two months was our pizza making session, led by Martina, our one and only Italian cook of the House!
Our last family-style dinner in the House with Regina and Eva!
Congratulations to all our boarding students of Grade 12 on completing their exams!
As the curtains draw to a close on the Grade 12 end-of-year exams, we want to extend our warmest congratulations to Eva and Regina who have both persevered through countless hours of studying, faced challenges head-on, and demonstrated unwavering determination throughout this academic journey.
Dear Eva and Regina,
